« on: June 09, 2005, 09:33:29 AM »
Does anybody have any information about health coverage options for Canadians going to law school in the United States?

I think you need to buy insurance. I think-OHIP (and whatever the other provinces call their plans) might cover certain things.

International students are required to either (a) purchase health insurance through the school or (b) provide proof that they have an insurance policy from somwhere else that both has comparable coverage AND works in the US.

Typically the school plans are reasonably priced and have decent-to-excellent coverage, so you'd probably save yourself a lot of time by just signing up with your school's program.
